Trying Japanese Desserts at a Traditional Tea House in Takayama, Japan

We experienced yet another rainy day in Takayama, so we decided to try some Japanese desserts at a traditional tea house. We stumbled upon this place by chance and what better way to stay dry?

In this video, we try matcha green tea, roasted tea, warabimochi with ice cream (jelly-like mochi with toasted soybean powder), and a sampler plate with 4 Japanese sweet cakes. The setting was perfect; low tables, cushions, tatami floors, and floor-to-ceiling windows where we could watch the rainy day go by.

If you happen to visit Takayama when during a bad stretch of weather, this is the perfect rainy day activity.

Trying Japanese Desserts at a Traditional Tea House in Takayama, Japan:

Hey guys! We are Samuel and Audrey, a vlogging travel couple from Canada. In this travel channel we share our travel and food vlogs while touring the world. Our most recent trip was to Japan where we spent 2 months traveling around the country and visiting the following destinations: Osaka, Tokyo, Kyoto, Nara, Nikko, Takayama, Yokohama, Odaiba, Shirakawa-gō and Takao.

During our stay, we visited a mixture of big cities and small rural towns, where we enjoyed eating Japanese street food, trying traditional Japanese cuisine, visiting local attractions and staying in unique accommodations (such as capsule hotels and ryokans) that we are now going to share with you on this channel. The combination and contrast of visiting futuristic cities and traditional countryside areas is what makes travel to Japan so fascinating. Ultra modern versus traditional. This is the essence of Japan.

Our trip to Japan was unforgettable and until now it is one of our favorite countries that we have come to know. However, we only feel as though we just scratched the surface on this trip to Japan. If you want to see more videos from Japan in the future, let us know in the comments that places you’d like us to travel to and food experiences you would like to see on this travel channel.
